manroland and Univacco Form a Partnership in Foils Segment
OFFENBACH, GERMANY—August 30, 2011—Enhancing print products with cold foil is very popular now. In response, manroland and Univacco Foils Holland BV have entered into a cooperation agreement that initially covers joint development and sales activities in the field of cold foil. Expansion of the cooperation in the future to include other areas, such as hot stamping foils, cannot be ruled out.
For many years, manroland has worked continuously on optimizing the technology and expanding the range of applications. An example is the cold foil enhancement with the Roland InlineFoiler Prindor.
New foil for attention-grabbing print results
Now, manroland and foil manufacturer Univacco have developed a new type of foil that, together with selected system components from manroland’s printcom product portfolio, provides outstanding results. Especially with cold foiling, the combination of high-quality materials and products is a prerequisite for premium enhancement. Even the slightest variation in the quality of individual components can have detrimental effects on the print result.
In order to achieve higher and more consistent quality, and to expand the range of applications, manroland has put together packages of perfectly coordinated printcom system components for different applications: cold foil, printing blankets, adhesive ink, fountain solution, washing agents, conventional ink, and coating.
The manroland Print Technology Center in Offenbach played a major role in developing the brand new foil from printcom and Univacco that achieves amazing results and is already being used in the field at selected customers under real production conditions. Furthermore, printcom offers local support by experts all over the world.
